Meeting with sheriffs at the Washington County Detention Center and took a tour to see where we will be conducting interviews for our project.
Today I helped several people. One of them did not speak any English and I had to do all of the interviewing in Spanish. Then I had to create an Answer to the Complaint for him in English while asking him questions in Spanish. This was a challenge, but an excellent experience. Prof. Prettyman said I did pretty well and made his Spanish look good:). He helped me explain how to Serve it on the opposing counsel. I definitely need to take some time to learn vocabulary with legal topics in Spanish.
I was able to go to a local elementary school and help interpret for parents who do not speak English about their children's performance in school.
